Festivities: Hastings Trip

We are back with another festive filled post, and there is only a couple more of these before Christmas! That honestly blows my mind.

Today I am going to be talking briefly about my trip to Hastings. I mentioned when I did blogmas last year in my traditions post (you can check that out here) that every year we go down to Hastings. You can read more about it in that post!

Once we got to Hastings we headed straight for a pub (which if you read that other post you will know why we go to this specific pub) in the old town. This has become a tradition that we have done for many years now.

This pub is very small but still has those old features and it just is so cosy and cute! This pub had also been given a new look inside, so was quite refreshing to see! It was also a bit strange at the same time, because of all of our previous memories. However, it did still have a lot of the same features but just had a bit of a glow up.

We ended up grabbing a drink and we normally sit down and just reflect about the past. I love this time because it is just nice to listen to all the stories and just hang out with my family.

Once we had finished our drinks one thing myself and my dad love to do is take a stroll into town. I don’t really know why, but we just do. Plus everything just looks so festive and cute around this time so I just love staring at everything around me.

Also Hastings is full of old looking buildings still, which I love so that is probably another reason why I love to take a walk around. It also gives me a chance to get any last minute presents, maybe any stocking fillers or little bits.

Once we finished walking around my dad and I decided to pick up some pick’ a’ mix, and yes it cost a FORTUNE. But it was definitely worth it, plus I am all for supporting those small businesses.

We all then decided to stop at this cute pub (which I completely forgot to take pictures off sorry) for a early dinner/late lunch. I mean you can’t really say no to a pub dinner. I got a roast because it’s near Christmas and I just felt like it! It was really nice, but definitely was a LOT of food as I could not finish it!

However, this pub was huge and cute and the details were lovely. Also it was on the way back home of our journey (which is about an hour and a bit), so it was nice to stop halfway through and just have some food and more family time.

Once we had finished eating we then just drove home! I decided to have a bath straight away to unwind for the evening. I used a bath bomb from Lush of course and it was just so relaxing! The perfect way to end the most fabulous day.

Anyway I hope you enjoyed, and have been enjoying the some what festive content!

What are your plans for Christmas day?
